Before you change your head unit (uConnect to Alpine) I would VERY CAREFULLY AND IN DETAIL check that it supports ALL the vehicle settings that the uConnect supports.

When a uConnect is fitted to a vehicle during production, as oppsed to the simple radio, then many of the vehcle setup options (not radio/phone/media settings) are then done via uConnect and not the dashboard settings menu. Things like cornering lights, remote functions, etc.

i now i’m evaluating another option

removal only of amplifier in the trunk,
non the uconnect

there is a unit from company “idatalink maestro ar”

that is made to substitute the oem amplifier with
another one aftermarket.
so the question:
if i leave oem uconnect, there are proxy alignement to do
removing only amplifier?
